Tension headaches, the most common type of headache, have been shown to respond well to massage therapy provided by a professional massage therapist. Through the intentional pressing, stroking, kneading and rubbing involved with effective massage, headache sufferers can find real pain relief as well as reduced muscle tension and more.
Through the stress-relieving, pain-alleviating power of a massage for headache, patients can often find wonderful relief from headache problems. In fact, some types of massage, particularly head massage, have not only proven effective in helping with tension headaches, but also in temporarily easing migraine pain. Massages can even help reduce the duration and frequency of migraine headaches. Along those same lines, some evidence confirms that migraine sufferers who receive migraine massage can experience fewer migraines and sleep better during the week of their massage.
